Areas of Study
We pride ourselves on our highly-customizable graduate programs. Students in the Lamb School work with their faculty advisors to create highly tailored plans of study typically based on a concentration of study in one of the primary areas and one or two additional areas within or outside the department. Our on-campus graduate program is organized under five primary areas of study each of which offers a variety of courses, research expertise, and partnership within and outside of the school:
- Health Communication
- Interpersonal Communication
- Media, Technology & Society
- Organizational Communication
- Public Relations
Interdisciplinary programs are also available in:
- Communication and Philosophy
- Communication and Aging
- Information Assurance and Security
- Public Health: MPH – Health Communication track
A student’s program is typically based on a concentration of study and research in one of these areas, designated as the student’s primary area, and one a secondary emphasis in either one or two additional areas chosen from those available within or outside the school.
The listing of a course under a particular area (e.g. organizational communication) is not intended as a limitation on its being used, when such use is appropriate, under a different heading as part of some other program or area (e.g. interpersonal). Students take courses within and outside of the School of Communication.
